I download 5 iso redhat 8, then I extract each of iso and copy cd in order.
I make a floppy boot disk and start pc. Boot OK and I follow the instruction on screen and I got an error "the Redhat CD wae not found in any your cdrom drives, please insert Redhat cd"
What is wrong with that? the CD have all correct files.
Please help. I am just beginner.

Fwiw, the first CD in the set is bootable.  If your system can boot from cd-rom, just boot that disc.  No floppy needed.

Also, you really only need the first 3 discs.  The others contain SRPMs which are just used if you wanted to recompile the source code.

As for your actual error, I'm not sure why that would happen if the CDs were burned correctly.  (I also haven't booted RH8 from floppy, so I'm not familiar with that process's pitfalls.)
